I just checked on Amazon, and The Complete Grace & Witherbloom is now, officially, out of print! There is one copy going for $157. That’s better than the $1,000 or so (!) a copy was going for previously, of course. I am intrigued how these third party things pop up, and how this third party is determining it has such work. Do you think there is just some robot that generates these things on Amazon? I should investigate some time. In any case, I thought it a good opportunity to write a bit more about the future, what with it being a brand new year and all.
First of all, one more thank you (I feel like I’m doing that a lot, but you can’t have too many of them, right?) to everyone who bought the book and supported this little venture of mine. It’s greatly appreciated. I’ve enjoyed all the feedback on the book I’ve gotten so far, and please feel free to let me know if you have more by writing a review on Goodreads, Amazon, or write me via the form below or through the contact page. Writing Grace & Witherbloom has taught me so many things as a writer, and I am using all those lessons in the writing of my next book.
Speaking of the next book, I got the notes back from my first beta readers, and they have been immensely helpful in tweaking the first draft. It’s amazing (and frightening) how much you can find with each new pass through a book. I’m about 3/4 of the way in shaping the second draft. After that, I plan to send it off to another person or two who expressed interest in reading the draft before I make my final edits.
Then, it’s off to find an agent! As I detailed in a previous post, this time I’m going through more traditional routes. I do have a few other projects and things bubbling away in the background. So who knows which thing you might see pop up next. I have been thinking about reformatting my personal website away from graphic design and toward writing. Or, possibly, making it a hybrid of the two. If that’s the case, then I’d probably move my blogging (such as it is) over there. But I’ll let you know.
